Wow! Sedona. I remember that city in the State of Arizona as one of the most beautiful, awesome, serene and peaceful places on planet Earth. Isn't that where those red rocks and vortexes are located. And isn't that also where some of those Marlborough Man cigarette advertisements were photographed before, with those red rock mountains in the background. And there is red sand and new age, spiritual everything to be found in this town everywhere from what I hear. And now there is a book, "Happy For No Reason", by Marci Shimoff, that has been written that can change you life. Mariel Heminway tells how The Sedona Method raised her happiness and changed her life in the book "Happy For No Reason". This book discusses how the The Sedona Method leads the happiness wave and you can learn how The Sedona Method is the secret to being truly happy. You can get a free CD and DVD also. And if you sign up now you can also receive a free subscription to the Sedona Method Success and well being newsletter and also a free insiders guide to The Sedona Method e-Reports. And you can also listen to audio samples of all four Sedona Method courses online. The Sedona Method can help you discover who you are and help you to become a more happier and peaceful you. And is this book related to that town Sedona in Arizona? And here is an interesting excerpt from the book:

Happiness Habit For The Mind #2:

Go Beyond The Mind And Let Go

If you let go a little
You will have a little peace.
If you let go a lot
You will have a lot of peace.
If you let go completely
You will have complete peace.

—The Venerable Ajahn Chah, 20th century Buddhist monk

The End Of The World Again

For some reason this day I am wondering how those Russians who were in the news headlines a few months ago for barricading themselves in a cave to wait for the end of the word are doing. According to them, the world is supposed to end in around May of this year, and from what I know, the month of May is near. And they had some interesting concepts as for what reason the end of the world is near, and their concepts of life were interesting enough to get my religious fanaticism thoughts going. These people see the commercialization of the church, tax identification numbers and passports as the apocalyptic sign of the beast and do not go to school, watch television, listen to radio or handle money. They believe in spiritual and moral education. Now that's interesting and way awesome. Are these people the chosen ones? Is it that Gog and Magog thing. Are these days the end times? Is Armageddon near? Is the Apocalypse and doomsday here? Is the Anti Christ on his, her or its way toward planet Earth now? What does Nostradamus and the prophecy people have to say about this? Well, I just looked up that doomsday group, and as of one of those articles dated January 8, 2008, they are still there in that cave waiting for the end of the world. Who is to decide what is normal and what is not. This is yet one more story to be followed in the news today and tomorrow, if there is a tomorrow. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind.

A Film

Hey Bloggers, what's up with that Tom Cruise Scientology film that some newspaper article says is titled "Valkyrie," that has been in the news for the past year. Today's headlines read something like "Has Tom lost his mind?". Isn't Tom Cruise putting the Church Of Scientology New York and the rest of the Scientologists the world in the headlines for people to become aware about what this organization and its concept is. And for what reason are certain organizations not so fond of this. Is this a political film or something. Is there something not so good about Scientology. And what is Scientology anyway? I think I have heard of Scientology in times past at anti psychiatry events and I believe their organization may oppose forced psychiatric treatment, the mental death system and all of the horror stories that go along with it. And I picked up one of those postcards that were on the ground months ago from the Church of Scientology New York that read: Introduction to Dianetics. Free 15 minute film showings daily every 15 minutes. Showing now! Bring your friends. And I am not sure if the film is still showing now as this postcard was found months ago. And on the front of this postcard was the message: Dianetics, The Modern Science of Mental Health, has been a best seller for over 50 years. It is the most popular book on the mind ever written. It contains the discovery of the "reactive mind", the source of your fears, insecurities, pains and nightmares. Find out what is controlling your life and how you can get rid of the reactive ind and achieve your goals. And I imagine this church has been busy lately with that Tom Cruise film and all, as this film sure did keep the German government busy for a while in some article a while back titled "Film's crew honors anti-Nazis". And I imagine this film makes a statement indeed and that many other articles have been written about this film many times since. And for all things alternative to Psych cia trickery and the mental death system, Mind Freedom is a great website to visit. And what about Hollywood and psychiatry anyway. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?

The Angels Sing

It's like the angels sing and sometimes he gutters the most comfortable place. So I heard someone say yesterday. And this posting really doesn't have anything to do with angels, I just liked the way that sentenced sounds. And I also heard someone say yesterday that Mercury is in retrograde again, starting today for the next three weeks and life can get wacky left and right. Oh, oh. Be careful where you walk, talk, say, and do because it's that karma thing of Murphy's law time again and whatever can go wrong will go wrong. Isn't Mercury the God of communication and war or something. And I remember writing about Mercury being in retrograde before on this blog. And what does Mercury being in retrograde mean anyway? Doesn't those medical staffs that fly away on the wings of love have something to do with Mercury; those snakes and that all seeing eye that sees all thing. And doesn't Mercury being in retrograde have to do with communication being out of whack? Does everything technology just stop working or go backwards. Well this computer seems to be working great so far today. And what else does Mercury in retrograde have to do with? The planet goes backward or something so everything else in life goes backwards until it decides to go forward again. What ever this retrograde thing may mean, have a great Mercury in retrograding day.

A Vacation

Everyone could use a holiday vacation I think. Maybe life could be one big siesta vacation, all play, all day. Or is that another one of those utopian visions. And as I was watching the news today, one of the headlines said, "The Monte Carlo Is On Fire in Las Vegas, Nevada" Isn't the Monte Carlo the hotel with that beautiful fountain that makes those beautiful water and lights shows each night, or is that the Bellagio Hotel. I remember that hotel as well as all of those other grand hotels on that Las Vegas strip. Welcome to Las Vegas rocks like no other state in the United States. And it could be easy to get casino gambling addicted in that entertainment mecca if one were not careful with their money there. And I imagine there must be a whole lot of gambling anonymous groups in Sin City maybe. And one would think the place is Disneyland every day of the year if it were not located near streets with cars driving through it maybe. And those hotels seem to take up whole football fields and then some. And if you happen to be looking for sightseeing tours to Las Vegas, Trusted Tours & Attractions offers tours, museums, attractions, hotels and great things to do in Las Vegas and many other states. And you can also win a Handheld GP5 when you sign up for their newsletter. Las Vegas; What Happens In Vegas Stays In Vegas.

A Chinese New Year

Okay, I think it must be Chinese New Year coming up again sometime soon because I read it somewhere that said so. I have always thought Eastern medicine, philosophy, religion and just eastern everything was way cool, and Chinese astrology even way cooler. And what is that Chinese zodiac thing about anyway, those twelve animals that mean something about ones personality and the order of the universe or something. It's that yin yang thing maybe. And those Chinatown parades are always awesome with those red and gold colors everywhere. Chinatown rocks, and those Chinese fortune cookies are way cool also, as they never seem to say anything bad. And what year of the Chinese New Year animal is it anyway. Is it the year of the rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, cock, dog, boar, tiger, ox or rat? Wikipedia probably has an answer for that, that website seems to have an answer for everything, at least the definition of words. And those Chinese Zodiac place mats that one gets in Chinese restaurants every so often are way cool also with those pictures and drawings of those animals. And oh, there happens to be a definition of the Chinese zodiac on this place mat. The Chinese Zodiac consists of a 12 year cycle, each year of which is names after a different animal that imparts distinct characteristics to its year. Many Chinese believe that the year of a persons birth is the primary factor in determining that person's personality traits, physical and mental attributes and degree of success and happiness throughout his lifetime. To learn about your animal sign, and the year of your birth among the twelve signs running around the border. If born before 1936, add 12 to the year you were born to find your year. And whatever this Chinese Year zodiac sign may be, happy Chinese New Year.

Hey bloggers, what's up with all that institutional fluorescent lighting to be found everywhere in the world these days? Or is it not everywhere in the world. Is that some sort of unnatural light. Does that florescent light have some sort of side effects. And for what reason is it called fluorescent lighting anyway. And for what reason does Lucifer flourasce could like florescent. Is this light Satan, bearer of light, an angel that changes forms, the biggest deceiver of all mankind stealing light from heaven or something. And what about that phrase "Too much light makes the baby go blind", what is that all about. And I am not even sure if Luciferflouresce is even a word or if it is even spelled right, but that words sounds like it should be a word as those lights sure can hurt ones eyes and can be the biggest deceiver of mankind. And aren't those lights missing a color of the color spectrum or something I once heard somewhere before. And don't they induce seizures in people or am I misunderstanding this I heard somewhere also. And for what reason are they never turned off in some institutions. What if that light never turns off. And as usual, I am wondering what that Internet bible Wikipedia has to say about this. No one is free while others are light oppressed. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?

This Cell Phone

Cell phones and cell phone accessories, I see them everywhere these days. People and children talking on their cell phones while they walk and talk in the supermarket aisles, banks, post offices, on the buses and in the subways and libraries if they could. Cell phones are everywhere these days. What was life like before the invention of the cell phone. And then there is that text message phenomenon, people typing feverishly into their cell phone some sort of message to I presume someone else. And then there is the cell phone fidgeters who fidget with the cell phones in their hands and stare blankly at them as if they are waiting for them to ring. Well if you happen to be looking for cell phones or cell phone accessories, Cellular Blowout is an ecommerce store that specializes in unlocked cell phones and cell phone accessories. Their website seems to have every cell phone and cell phone accessory one can imagine. Cellular Blowout has around 300 different phone models available and over 17,000 different accessories.

The American stock market is plunging and the dollar is falling so the headlines say today. And the Federal Reserve Bank can not seem to print up enough money to cover all of the debt fast enough it seems. And now the headlines say that the international market is falling as a result. What does that mean? Should everyone start paying their loans back to get the world out of debt? And what's that delinquent loans, foreclosures and federal interest rate cut thing all about in the news lately. Is the world economy headed for another one of those recession depression eras again. Will housing be free and squats prevail in the foreseeable future as a result of this stock market thing. Or is that some Utopian dream. And what is the purpose of jails again. What was life like before the invention of jails. Was it dungeons. Is no one free while others are oppressed. Or is that another one of those Utopian visions again. And somewhere in the midst of reading those headlines of the day and MySpacing, I came across someones MySpace page about peace and politics, that had a sentence that read, "We need more propaganda, not less propaganda". And this sentence led me to think, what the heck does propaganda mean, to propose? I have heard of that word before. Is this blog propaganda? And I once saw a sentence, "The American flag propagates violence". What the heck is that all about. Isn't that George Orwell 1984 Big Brother book about propaganda or something. And what does that Internet bible dictionary Wikipedia have to say about this word. Isn't this a political word or something. I guess I will look up this word after I finish blah blogging about it, and whatever this word may mean, have a great propaganda day. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?

Art And Politics

And today is the day Martin Luther King is honored. No one is free while others are oppressed. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind. And in a change of topic as I blah blog away on this holiday, I received one of those ABC No Rio COMA emails the other day. ABC No Rio seems to have been doing these COMA events for a while now and they have a really cool MySpace page. And I remember ABC No Rio for seemingly forever now as one of those radical, alternative squat community spaces in the neighborhood of the Lower East Side that has seemingly survived gentrification, genocide, the sellout and buyout of the squats and still exists to function with their cool and hip events over the years. ABC No Rio has been all art and politics for as long as I can remember. And so there is the COMA series emails again that I have been receiving, and that first show listed was actually yesterday, though the series seems to be ongoing. And I thought to repost this email because, hey, it's less writing sometimes. And the subject of this email is:

The Elections

I have been reading, seeing and hearing in the news lately the lost of many lives due to the elections that are taking place this time of year around the world. People in Kenya, Pakistan, and Sudan are perishing and losing their lives protesting elections that seem to have been rigged or something by people in office in other countries. Does power and authority breed corruption. What happens when elections cause people to perish in demonstration, rallies or any other means of seeking fairness and faith in the way the world operates. Has this type of who says how the world operates or else thing happened in civilization throughout time And I once saw these buttons that read "Don't vote for organized crime, if voting changed anything it would be illegal". Yet what other system is there in a system of democracy. Anarchy,communism, socialism, tribalism, hippieism, utopiaism or any other ism. And then there is that topic of guns again. What was life like before the invention of guns. Guns are the worst invention of an industry ever and that's a whole another blog posting. Win or lose. No one is free while others are oppressed. Is another world possible. And what does this have to to do with a No Police State?

The Ninety Nine Cents Store

And as I was crossing Delancey Street the other day, I noticed how that shopping district has changed, along with the rest of New York City and gentrification. And I noticed the 99 cents stores that were there years ago were closed and replaced with what looked like nine dollars and ninety nine cents stores, chain stores, boutiques, cafes, banks and hotels, and many of them. And Delancey street is starting to look like Le' Delancey Street. The Delancy Street area as well as much of the New York City area seems as if it is a city for sale. And the people are still there, yet who are the people. They say the only thing constant is change. Every decade of New York seems to have a different era in real estate. The 60's I hear rent was so cheap everyone could afford to move once a month, the 70's landlords torched their buildings, ran tenants out of buildings for fire insurance and arson was everywhere. The 80's buildings were abandoned and squats flourished. The 90's, gentrification and genocide seem to have taken place with no end in sight and if one has cheap rent without ten roomates, try and hold on to it. And what does the next decade thereafter hold for New York City. And when I looked down Delancy Street, I saw this really big billboard about ten stoplights down that read "Where Have All The Junkies Gone? Village Voice." Hugh? Well I guess the junkies could still be around but maybe they are rich junkies now instead of poor junkies or something. And what happens when even the yuppies start complaining that even they can not afford to live in New York City anymore. And I guess it's that end of an era change real estate what happened to the Bowery and old New York thing again. Where have all the 99 cents stores on Delancy street gone?

Hey Bloggers

Hey Bloggers, is today Martin Luther King Day? That annual holiday of the year that honors the former peacemaker, marcher, minister, activist, civil rights leader of the past. I have been seeing emails today titled "The I Have A Nightmare Speech", and "In honor of Dr. King on his 79th birthday Jan 15th". Oh, so maybe January 15th is his birthday, and that was yesterday wasn't it? Let me look at that Gregorian calendar again and see what it says..... Well this calendar that I am looking at says January 21 is Martin Luther King Day, so either this day is here or it is near. And when I think of Martin Luther King, I think of that German guy, Martin Luther, the guy who started the Protestant church, and those other great peaceful leaders from the 60's, John F. Kennedy, Rosa Parks and even Gandhi, the guy who gave up his worldly belongings to wander the earth and preach peace. And what the heck is that "I have A Nightmare Speech" email all about that I received in my inbox today. That email title looks interesting enough that I want to read it now to see what it says.... And I just read it, and that email is a very long anonymously written passage that I am not exactly sure what to make of that reads:

The "I Have a Nightmare Speech"

I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as an insignificant demonstration for complacency in the history of our nation.

Five score hours ago, a White middle class American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the credit card bill for his Starbucks Latte. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of mainly "so and so" middle class ego trippers who had been seared in the flames of withering insignificance. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their obscurity.
But one hundred hours later, the mainly "so and so" middle class loiterer still is not in control of the world. One hundred hours later, the life of the mainly "so and so etc;" middle class American is still sadly crippled by the manacles of insignificance and the chains of absurdity. One hundred years hours later, the mainly middle class American lives on a lonely island of barely moderate prosperity in the midst of a vast ocean of material poverty. One hundred hours later, the mainly middle class American is still languishing in the center of American society and finds himself an non-entity in his own land. So we have come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.

In a sense we have come to our nation's capital to ask for a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every mainly middle class American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all mainly White middle class men, (but, of course, not black men or Latino men or poor White men and certainly not most women), would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her mainly middle class citizens are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the mainly middle class American people a bad check, a check which has come back marked "insufficient funds." But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. So we have come to demand this check — a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice taken from the labor and resources of those who are not fortunate enough to be "So and so" and/or middle class and We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quick sands of injustice against the mainly "so and so" middle class to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's "So and so" and middle class children.

It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment. This sweltering summer of the mainly middle class legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. Two Thousand and Eight is not an end, but a beginning. Those who hope that the mainly middle class needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual. There will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the mainly middle class is granted the citizenship rights of everyone in the world. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice for mainly middle class people emerges.

But there is something that I must say to my people who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice. In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by throwing drink from the cup of bitterness and hatred in the face of other people.

We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force. The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the mainly middle class community must not lead us to a distrust of all non - "so and so" people, for many of our non "So and so" brothers and sisters, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up to be beneath our destiny. They have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot walk alone but must have all others beneath us and carrying our luggage and a beer or two in case we get thirsty.

As we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead of all other people. We cannot turn back and even look at those less fortunate than us. There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, "When will you be satisfied?" We can never be satisfied as long as the mainly "so and so" middle class is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of not enough police brutality against those who challenge our privileges and superiority. We can never be satisfied, as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of travel, cannot gain free lodging in the motels of the highways and the hotels of the cities. We cannot be satisfied as long as the mainly middle class's basic mobility is from a smaller job or career to a larger one. We can never be satisfied as long as our children are stripped of their selfhood and robbed of their dignity by signs stating "Not For "So and so" Middle Class Only". We cannot be satisfied as long as a middle class person in Mississippi cannot win all the votes and a middle class in New York believes he actually has to vote in order to win an election. No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream inot our pockets every time we want something.

I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. Some of you have come fresh from narrow jail cells. Some of you have come from areas where your quest for free money left you battered by the storms of persecution and staggered by the winds of the lack of police brutality to help you get richer. You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith that unearned money is redemptive.

Go back to Mississippi, go back to Alabama, go back to South Carolina, go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our northern cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and but never will be changed. Let us not wallow in the valley of despair - they are not going to ever overthrow us.

I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a nightmare. It is a nightmare deeply rooted in the American horrors.

I have a nightmare that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all middle class men are created equal."

I have a nightmare that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slave owners and the sons of former business owners will be able to sit down together at the table of the exploitation of brotherhood.

I have a nightmare that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice and a nice place to rip people off.

I have a dream that my four little middle class children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their bank accounts.

I have a nightmare today.

I have a nightmare that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification; one day right there in Alabama, little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with poor working class little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers all helping the mainly middle class become more prosperous.

I have a nightmare today.

I have a nightmare that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Money shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.

This is our hope. This is the faith that I go back to the North with. With this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of subordinated brotherhood. With this faith they will be able to work together to make us richer, to pray together to make us happier, to struggle together to serve us better, to go to jail together if they disobey us, to stand up for free money for us together, knowing that they will be never be free but will serve us forever..

This will be the day when all of God's middle class children will be able to sing with a new meaning, "My country, 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty for me, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers stole, land of the pilgrim's theft, from every mountainside, let free money ring."

And if America is to be a great nation this must become true. So let free money ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let free money ring from the mighty restaurants of New York. Let free money ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania!

Let class domination and privilege ring from the snowcapped Rockies of Colorado!

Let class domination and privilege ring from the curvaceous slopes of California! (Or at least from Santa Monica and the Westside and especially from the Peace Center)

But not only that; let class domination and privilege ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!

Let class domination and privilege ring from Lookout Mountain of Tennessee!

Let class domination and privilege ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let free money for US ring.

And when this happens, when we allow class domination and privilege to ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's White middle class children (and a very small number of token Black men and Latino men Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics - but no Muslims or Hindus), will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old middle class spiritual, "Free money at last! free money at last! thank God Damn Almighty, we are have free money at last!"

And here is that other email "In honor of Dr. King on his 79th birthday Jan 15th", taken from a speech given by Dr. King .

The Need To Be "Maladjusted"

Modern psychology has a word that is probably used more than any other word. It is the word "maladjusted. " Now we all should seek to live a well—adjusted life in order to avoid neurotic and schizophrenic personalities. But there are some things within our social order to which I am proud to be maladjusted and to which I call upon you to be maladjusted. I never intend to adjust myself to segregation and discrimination. I never intend to adjust myself to mob rule. I never intend to adjust myself to the tragic effects of the methods of physical violence and to tragic militarism. I call upon you to be maladjusted to such things. I call upon you to be as maladjusted to such things. I call upon you to be as maladjusted as Amos who in the midst of the injustices of his day cried out in words that echo across the generation, "Let judgment run down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream." As maladjusted as Abraham Lincoln who had the vision to see that this nation could not exist half slave and half free. As maladjusted as Jefferson, who in the midst of an age amazingly adjusted to slavery could cry out, "All men are created equal and are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights and that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." As maladjusted as Jesus of Nazareth who dreamed a dream of the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. God grant that we will be so maladjusted that we will be able to go out and change our world and our civilization. And then we will be able to move from the bleak and desolate midnight of man’s inhumanity to man to the bright and glittering daybreak of freedom and justice.

And after reading these passages from above in observance of Martin Luther King Day, I think of that social tees t-shirt that I have seen with the words black, white, red, yellow and brown crossed out and replaced with the work human. And I think to post that coexist photo again on this day. That humanity can coexist together in a peaceful world. No one is free while other are oppressed. Is another world possible. Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?

The Weather

Hey bloggers. What's going on with the weather. Is this 2012 earth changing its axis end of the world thing getting nearer or something. Are there some unusual weather patterns going on in the world right now. I look around outside in New York City and people are wearing t shirts and flip flops in the middle of January. And I turn on the news and those weather reports are saying there was snow in Iraq, for the first time in recent memory or something. And then there were twisters and tornadoes in the Midwest with photos of people going through the rubble of the aftermath of a tornado in winter coats. All of these rare weather events in the middle of January. And what are the polar bears doing. Are they floating on ice yet. And that "Go Green" motto in the media seems to be the thing every where these things, as it is now the norm for environmentally conscious measures to take place for the earth to sustain itself. Is the earth on fire now? Is it becoming like the day after tomorrow, the movie. Is overoilism, over consumerism, over plasticism, over energy, over mining, over oceanism, over pillaging the earth of all its natural resources, over population, over everything causing planet mother earth to get sick. Or is this weather just that change of climate thing. What do the meteorologists have to say about this. Help save planet mother earth. Is another world possible.

This Car

And so here I go again wondering what to blah blog about today in the blogosphere of a quadrillion zillion bloggers. And this posting seems take me to the subject of the car lease, cars, automobiles, and more care. And what was life like before the invention of cars anyway during those horse and buggy days? And what would Robert Moses, the guy who built highways for cars, and Critical Mass and Transportation Alternatives, those bicycle advocate groups have to say about cars? Well, I know I see cars everywhere on the streets here in New York City, and many of them as a way to get around town. And then there is that topic of gas, oil, petroleum, and more gas, and maintaining a car and the parking tickets that goes along with the car in this town. And that's a whole another blog posting. Well if you happen to be in the U.K. looking for an alternative way to buy a new car or a second hand car for whatever reason, BuyYourCar offers and extensive search option database of new cars, used cars, and contract for hire car specials at great prices for your budget, make or model of car. Each new leased vehicle found on their website comes with a full U.K. warranty and low lease rates. BuyYourCar works very closely with franchised dealers and car brokers all across the U.K. and they make it easy for you to lease a new car if you are not yet looking to buy a new car.

A European Union

What's up with those Euromania articles that have been in the newspapers lately? I have even been seeing Uncle Sam scam dressed in tattered, frayed and worn out clothing full of holes a lot lately, panhandling for cash in some of those cartoons that depict this recent Euromania phenomenon. And I guess the term Euromania has been recently coined to refer to the economic issue of America, the drop in the currency exchange rate of the United States dollar and the highly favorable exchange rate for the European Euro. Is the depression near in America again? Has it arrived? Well, it doesn't exactly look like it could be here is America too much yet by looking around outside, except for the homeless and except that people from Canada and Europe are crossing the border left in right to cash in on the American dollar. One can now be rich if they exchange their Euro banknotes in America now I guess. Could I go to any one of those, is it twelve countries that are part of the European Union in Europe, and exchange that dollar bill there and get rich. Oh, it doesn't work that way. The Euro has gained on the dollar at the moment and it would be just the opposite, I would be poorer I guess. And so the real estate in America is flying off the shelves as a result of this favorable exchange rate. And people are preferring their payments in Euros I read. The City of New York is inundated right now with foreigners with dollar signs in their eyes. And who these people are, I am not exactly sure. Long Live The Euro.

Hey bloggers, what's a blacklist? For some reason that word came to mind today as I think I may have heard someone say it. And now because I am forever trying to figure out what to blah blog about these days in my blogaholicness, I decided to blah blog today about what the heck is a blacklist. Is that a list that's black? As in opposite of a whitelist. Or is it a list that one cannot see, a list of darkness. And if it is a list of darkness that you can not see, then for what reason is it blacklisted anyway. Is this the list of the abyss of hell, the outer darkness of never never land, a dark hole to the twilight zone. And now I wonder, how does one find these black lists to see them if they really exist. And can you find them if they really are in the dark. And how are these lists created. Do they come from outer space. How long do they live. Are these list a secret that only black list members can see, or can anyone and everyone see them, if they exist. Does Wikipedia have an entry for this word? I should go and read Wikipedia now.... Oh. Now that's interesting. Wikipedia actually does have an entry for that word so I guess it's true, it's official. The blacklist does exist. And according to Wikipedia, this list does not sound as if it is the happpiest list, as I guess it is not the white list that one can see, what ever that list is, if even it could exist. Well, black list or white list and whatever and where ever these lists are and could be, have a great listing day.

I've been receiving those New York City area protest calendar announcements in my email inbox from Todd Eaton every week or so for quite a while now. And I can not even remember how I even wound up subscribing to the list in the first place. And somehow I am a subscriber to this New York protest list that seems to be all protest all the time. I imagine if one wanted to be a 24 hour 365 day a year protester and attender of rallies, demonstrations and political events to help save the world, this list would be the list to consult, as it seems as if it has every single political cause, protest, event and party listed in the New York City area.

Film Noir

Now that's interesting. There is an article on the cover of this weeks Village Voice with an image of a gun titled "The Year In Bloody Good Film: Violence Is Golden". The Village Voice and the LA Weekly did a year in film critics' poll, and something like the top 10 notable films were all violent or something. What does that say about these days and times when the top ten films in a critics poll are all violent. And somewhere in that article they actually mentioned the phrase "Film Noir". And I wasn't exactly sure what the word film noir even meant until I Wikipediaed it up. And that Internet bible dictionary Wikipedia described the phrase "film noir" as a cinematic term used primarily to describe stylish Hollywood crime dramas, particularly those that emphasize moral ambiguity and sexual motivation. Hollywood's classic film noir period is generally regarded as stretching from the early 1940s to the late 1950s and emerged in the United States during the Depression. The term film noir is French for "black film". Well, I am not exactly sure what this all means, but I guess the term means to glorify and romanticize violence. And I do find it amazing that any publication with advertising would even mention that phrase in an article these days, that film noir glorifies violence, being that guns and the images of guns are advertised everywhere in film, television, newspapers, telescreens, music lyrics, video games, cartoons, posters, commercials, sides of buses, insides of buses, the floors and walls of every single form of transportation possible, light poles, bus stops, sidewalks, doorsteps, walls, floors, ceilings, t-shirts, clothing, the air and anywhere else on planet earth that looks marketable. It is bombarding the advertising of guns to look cool these days. For what reason could not actors and models or any other person hold an object other than a gun or a weapon to look cool. Could not everyone start posing with flowers, or sticks and stones or something to look cool in these media advertisements these days. And what about public broadcasting non commercial sponsored media. Is public, listener sponsored media an alternative to corporate sponsored media and violent content. And what is corporate sponsored media. And what about technology and violence. Are they related. And what is technology and its advancement. And then there is that fourth amendment of the the right to bear arms constitution, the right to take another life for a piece of property, a shelter over ones head that should be free, a basic necessity of life of mankind, material goods. And the whole world is paying as someone loses their life to gun violence every day as the story is told today and the headlines will read tomorrow, yesterday and thereafter with no end in sight. If only a constitution could be written to abolish guns and the images of guns from everywhere and everyone on the face of planet earth. And in any given publication of most newspapers, half of the film advertisements have images of guns in them. In any given news cast, half of the news program, programming is of crime and violence. On any given prime time television schedule, half of the television programs are of crime, violence and guns. And again, I could copy my blog posts over and over in my appeal to end gun violence. To banish guns and the images of guns from every single place and human being on the face of planet earth. Guns are the worst invention of an industry ever. It is bombarding, the advertising of people holding guns to look cool, and pointing guns at you, the viewer, as you look at the poster or printed advertising. Does not advertising and programing influence and program society and people? Does not glorifying violence influence the world. And what are those TiVo things. Do they help one to filter out offensive programming in the media. It is that vicious cycle that feeds on itself again, advertising feeds marketing, which feeds crime, which feeds the news which feeds more crime which feeds more violence which feeds more advertising which feeds more news cycle. And it is interesting to read what the origin of film noir means, that this whole film noir thing started during the depression, right along with the Satan, Santa Claus marketing of the Christmas holiday shop, buy, spend more money, go into more debt, over consumerism season. Does this glorifying of violence as if it is romantic, reflect the moral decline of the world, the collapse of society? Are wars debasing the value of human life. Is there hope for the world. Will this beast, whatever or whoever this beast this may be ever release its grip on mankind. It seems as if the Emperor is wearing no clothes in the world these days, whatever the moral of that story may mean. What was life like before the invention of guns? I am only one blogger, one voice. No one is free while others are oppressed. Is another world possible? Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?

This Blog

And as I was just blah blogging about in that previous post, there must be a zillion other blogs out there in the bloggerworld blogosphere, so many that I wonder if it is possible to even read them all. And the titles and topics of some of these other blogs which range from about everything to everything in the alphabet, seem to be all over the place. And some of these blogs in the bloggerworld seem to be more or less interesting than others. And then there are those political blogs. There is this interesting blog, formykountry, that talks about interesting topics, and some of the posts are thought provoking. seems to be a political patriotic blog, as the title says "The Patriot's Den at" so I gather this blog may be for my country, assuming that is the country of America. And then there are images of American flags, stars and stripes, and presidents of America on this blog, and quotes from former Presidents of America. ForMyKountry is a conservative themed, opinionated blog and I try to figure out if it is going to the left, right, sideways, straight, up or down. And the topics are interesting and some are even jokes. There are the topics about gun control, sports, facts and trivia and many other topics. And then there is that posting: "After talking to a liberal give them 2 asperins and tell to go to bed". That's interesting.

Mardi Gras

And today on this day I find myself wondering what topic to blah blog about in my internetaholic blogging in the blogosphere bloggerworld. And as usual I find myself wondering these days, how do all of those zillions of other bloggers in the bloggerworld find topics to write about on a daily basis or as often as one blogs. That how does one find content for ones website thing. And what's the purpose of blogging again? TO rant and ramble away, to log ones diary or share ones thoughts or something. Well this web 2.0 user social media generated content thing still amazes me even to this day. And so the random thought for the day that comes to mind for this blog is that purple Mardi Gras cup I happen to be looking at at the moment. What can I say and write about Mardi Gras? Didn't the party week just pass with the New Years and isn't Mardi Gras approaching next month in February or something. More parties? And what does the word Mardi Gras mean anyway. The words sounds French maybe, like Gras grand, more of something. I wonder what that Internet bible dictionary Wikipedia would have to say about this word and holiday. And so this purple cup has written all over it, "Happy Mardi Gras" with images and drawings of clowns, pianos, music symbols, floats, confetti, revelers at a parade grand procession, that tragedy and comedy mask, horns, decks of cards, those Mardi Gras coins, the future dates of Mardi Gras all the way up until 2010 and just one big party scene. I guess these are some of the images of the Mardi Gras. And those Mardi Gras Marching bands from Louisiana rock.

Alternatives Beyond Psychiatry

And so I saw my friend Laura the other day, over these end of the year, New Years Day holidays. And her being as anti Big Pharma, American Psychiatric Association, American Medical Association, National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI), Friends and Alliances of the Mentally Ill (FAMI) parents who lock up their kids in wards, mental death system and everything else psych cia trick oppression in between, as am I also, she had this book with her that she wrote a chapter for. And Laura has been one of those "Abolish forced psychiatric treatment, Psychiatry Kills" advocates for as long as I can remember. And the book is called Alternatives Beyond Psychiatry edited by Peter Stastny, Peter Lehmann, with a preface by Robert Whiteker. I haven't exactly read this book yet but I am sure it addresses the atrocities of the mental death system which includes eugenics inspired psychiatric killing centers in Nazi Germany which is how the holocaust began, and that this book advocates humane alternatives to the mental health system, psychiatric drugs, electroshock and locked wards. And the cover of the book is interesting, there must be photos of about sixty or so authors who again I assume speak for alternative for psychiatry. And among them is David Oaks, founder of Support Coalition International, an organization that addresses alternatives to psychiatry for as as long as I can remember. And in this book there are chapters by Laura Ziegler, Jim Gottstein, Kate Millett, Marius Romme and Sandra Escher, Gisela Sartori, Rufus May, Jan Wallcraft, Philip Thomas and Salma Yasmeen, Bruce Levine and many others. And there is another book advertised on the last page, "Coming Off Psychiatric Drugs: Successful Withdrawal from Neuroleptics, Antidepressants, Lithium, Carbamazepine and Tranquilizers", edited by Peter Lehmann, Prefaces by Judi Chamberlin, Pirkko Lahti and Loren R. Mosher. And I would think that this book would have a message to share for alternative to the mental death system. Whether these books will change the world, I am not sure. Is another world possible. And what does this have to do with a No Police State? Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind.
